Does anyone feel this?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Can anyone relate to this or know why?

One thing that feels strange to me is this sluggish blood moving sensation. Let me explain. When I sleep, I have to sleep on my back. Sometimes in the middle of the night, I have to get up and use the restroom. Once I'm standing, I don't move, but it's like I feel all the blood in my body moving slowly downwards. It's the strangest sensation ever. It also happens when I'm lying on my back in bed and try to lay on my right or left. It's like I feel all the blood in my body shifting to the other side. Can anyone relate to this? I know this sounds crazy, but I'm telling you I can feel the blood moving in the opposite direction once I change positions. The other unique thing is that it only happens once I've been still for a few hours. So it mostly happens when I'm sleeping and I wake up hours later. Thanks for any input you can offer.

Sure, I always feel numbness or "lightness" in certain areas where I feel more blood should be flowing. The worst is when I have to crouch to clean up after the dog in the backyard. The only thing I can think that helps even a little bit is trying not to change positions too quickly and standing still too long can be a problem too.
